Error occuring as "No LSB modules are available"

Asked by Deven Moga on 2009-08-27


I am trying to change the display name of the different fields in the Purchase order screen. Below is my code.

<record id="purchase_order_form_inherit_for_deliveryandinvoice" model="ir.ui.view">
     <field name="name">purchase.order.form.inherit_for_deliveryandinvoice</field>
            <field name="model">purchase.order</field>
            <field name="type">form</field>
     <field name="inherit_id" ref="purchase.purchase.order.form"/>
            <!--<field name="arch" type="xml">
                  <field name="invoice_method" string="Hi"/>

Currently i have commented the code where i want to put custom display name. But either it is commented or uncommented, it's generating below error,

No LSB modules are available.

Hello Deven,

Would you please tell me whether the ref you use for inherit_id field is the correct one?

I doubt because it should be MODULENAME.XMLID. not the MODULENAME.FORMNAME

IMHO, it should be purchase.purchase_order_form.

Hello Jay,

I am not getting your answer completely. Can you provide me some example for that?

And another thing if i am trying to hide any PAGE or any STRING or any GROUP, i am getting same error. Can you please also tell me how can i hide above things?
It will be very appericiable if you provide me some example.


Hi Deven,

The problem resides in your code.
It should be <field name="inherit_id" ref="purchase.purchase_order_form"/>
purchase_order_form is the id of the xml record on purchase module. purchase.order.form is the name of the record.

Example is in addons/account/partner_view.xml file where we have inherited partner's form view, and added a new tab.

You can hide page,group ,etc. but this error causes the break in the flow.

Notify me if the problem still persists.

Please provide some solution.


Hi Deven,

If you look at the existing codes, it is quite a basic issue.

The Interpretation of this error is, the parent view(purchase_order_form) does not have any field with the same signature.

You code must be:
            <field name="arch" type="xml">
                <field name="invoice_method" position="replace">
                    <field name="invoice_method" string="HI"/>

Hello Jay,

It worked. But there is one problem that if i want to change the name of PAGE string then how can i do that? For example in purchase order string i want to change "Delivery &amp; Invoices" to "Delivery". Can you please tell me how can i do that?


Hi Deven,

This stuff follows the same idealogy.

<field name="arch" type="xml">
                <page string="XYZ" position="replace">
                    <page string="HI">
                     Copy the whole page children tags

Here, You want to replace anything to any tag, you can do like this simply. You need all the children tags too if any.


Deven Moga (erpsupport) said : #8

Hi Jay,

I done above procedure, but instead of replacing the page, it duplicates the Page and generate the another page which i want to create.

So i decided to replace the whole notebook but when i do that it gives me above error.
what should i do now?
